November 2, 2016 The House that Stamps Built - Color Challenge



For this color challenge I used two leaf stamps from Repeat Impressions
     5110-I and 5127-K  which are both from the Autumn collection - Oak and Maple Leaf Silhouette and the sentiment is from the Thanksgiving collection
     3214-G Thanksgiving Blessings 

I stamped the leaves in orange and brown - and as you will see the browns and oranges shaded to look like the fall leaves we are viewing now.  I embossed the Thanksgiving in gold embossing as well as some gold/brown sequins for embellishments.  Then I decided to add some splatters of orange just for a bit of texture and interest.  

I have several Thanksgiving cards that I mail out so this one is addressed and ready to put in the mail in about 3 weeks. 

Hoping you will join us this week at The House that Stamps Built  using our color challenge - such beautiful colors to work with for fall.  You don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps  but if you do your entry will get not 1 but 2 chances to win a $25.00 gift certificate for Repeat Impressions stamps.  If you look over on my right side bar I have a 10% discount coupon to use in the store for stamps - (Christmas is coming and they have some really cute Christmas stamps).  We are looking forward to seeing your creation.  

Now take a look at what our  Design Team has created to get you started.

I love this, Shirley! Your arrangement of leaves is fabulous and the touch of splatters in orange is a perfect detail.
